What we offer

Competenz provides resources, assessment and moderation support, and careers information to enable trades training in schools and provide career opportunities for students.


This short video tells you all you need to know about our new school-specific mechanical engineering resources, released in August 2020.

Our resources help teachers prepare secondary students for a career in Engineering, Forestry, Furniture, Wood Manufacturing, Apparel, Baking, Butchery and Printing while they achieve their national standards. They give students practical projects that build basic skills in their relevant industry discipline.

Learning and assessment guides, as well as workbooks can be ordered from our schools resources web page.


Assessment and moderation

Moderation plays an important role in ensuring:

  • your students have gained the skills and knowledge they need
  • assessments are valid, consistent and fair across all schools.

If your school would like to offer Competenz unit standards:

We help you set up your assessment team and understand the unit standards we moderate and how we do this. Then we support that team with resources like assessment guides and professional development workshops. Our School Reporting of Competenz Credits guide helps explain the process.
